2.2 Requests for Advances. Each Advance shall (i) be made upon the Company’s irrevocable written notice to the Lender (each such notice, a “Notice of Advance Request”), (ii) be received by the Lender not later than 3:00 p.m. two Business Days prior to the requested date of funding of such Advance (the “Advance Funding Date”) and (iii) be in a principal amount of $50,000 or a whole multiple of $10,000 in excess thereof.
2.3 Conditions Precedent. The obligation of the Lender to extend credit under this Agreement is subject to the fulfilment of the following conditions precedent at the time such credit is extended:
(a) no Default has occurred and is continuing or would arise immediately after giving effect to or as a result of such extension of credit;
(b) the representations and warranties of the Company contained in the Agreement shall be true and correct on the date such credit is made available as if such representations and warranties were made on such date; and
(c) the satisfactory completion of the Lender’s ongoing due diligence with respect to the Company.

On each Advance Funding Date, the Lender will choose, at its sole discretion, whether the Company shall issue a Warrant entitling the Lender to purchase, at an exercise price of $0.35 per share (subject to adjustment pursuant to the terms of the Warrant), that number of Common Shares equal to the dollar amount of the Advance divided by $0.50, and will provide notice of its decision to the Company at the time of the Advance Funding Date. If the Lender does not provide such notice to the Company, the Company shall issue a Warrant. By way of example, if the Advance is $100,000, the Company will issue a Warrant to the Lender to acquire 200,000 Common Shares. Warrants issued prior to the date of this Agreement shall not be modified, amended or altered by the terms of this Agreement and shall remain in full force and effect.

4.2 Interest Payment Dates. Interest shall be payable quarterly in arrears to the Lender on each Interest Payment Date.
4.3 Default Interest.

At Lender’s option, interest with respect to any Convertible Advance may be paid by the Company in registered, freely tradeable Common Shares valued at the applicable Fixed Conversion Price.
5.2 Application of Payments. All cash payments made hereunder shall be applied first, to the payment of any fees or charges outstanding hereunder, second, to accrued interest and third, to the payment of the principal amount outstanding under this Agreement.
5.3 Business Day Convention. Whenever any payment to be made hereunder shall be due on a day that is not a Business Day, such payment shall be made on the next succeeding Business Day and such extension will be taken into account in calculating the amount of interest payable under this Agreement.
5.4 Evidence of Debt. The Lender is authorized to record on the grid attached hereto as Exhibit A each Advance made to the Company and each payment or prepayment thereof. The entries made by the Lender shall, to the extent permitted by applicable Law, be prima facie evidence of the existence and amounts of the obligations of the Company therein recorded; provided, however, that the failure of the Lender to record such payments or prepayments, or any inaccuracy therein, shall not in any manner affect the obligation of the Company to repay (with applicable interest) the Loan in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
5.5 Rescission of Payments. If at any time any payment made by the Company under this Agreement is rescinded or must otherwise be restored or returned upon the insolvency, bankruptcy or reorganization of the Company or otherwise, the Company’s obligation to make such payment shall be reinstated as though such payment had not been made.
6.1 Conversion. The Lender will choose, in its sole discretion, at the time of an Advance, as to whether the Advance will or will not be convertible in accordance with this Section 6 (each such Advance, a “Convertible Advance”) and will provide notice of its decision to the Company at the time of the Advance. If the Lender does not provide such notice to the Company, the Advance will not be convertible. At any time and from time to time during the period when there are funded Convertible Advances outstanding, following delivery of a Conversion Notice, the Lender at its sole discretion may convert all or a part of the outstanding Loan (up to a maximum amount equal to the total amount of Convertible Advances plus interest thereon, together with all accrued and unpaid interest thereon), into Common Shares at a price per Common Share equal to the applicable Fixed Conversion Price. The parties hereby agree that all Advances outstanding as of the date shall be deemed Convertible Advances.
6.2 Delivery of Stock Certificates. As promptly as practicable, if requested by the Lender, the Company at its expense will issue and deliver to the Lender a certificate or certificates for the number of full Common Shares issuable upon such conversion.
6.3 Fractional Shares. No fractional shares of common stock shall be issued upon any conversion pursuant to Section 6.1 or issuance pursuant to Section 5.1. If the issuance would result in the issuance of a fraction of a Common Share, the Company shall round such fraction of a Common Share, up or down, as applicable, to the nearest whole share.
6.4 Dividend Protection. Immediately following any communication to the Company of the Lender’s intention to exercise any of its conversion rights hereunder, the Lender shall thereafter be entitled to receive the cash value of any dividends issued by the Company, at an amount equal to (x) the number of Common Shares that would have been delivered to the Lender at the applicable Fixed Conversion Price, multiplied by (y) the dividend percentage per Common Share.
7. Conversion Price Adjustments. The conversion price (the “Fixed Conversion Price”) per Common Share for any Advance made after the date hereof shall be $0.25. Any Advances made priod to the date hereof shall continue to have a Fixed Conversion Price of $0.40. The Fixed Conversion Price for each Common Share shall be subject to adjustment from time to time as follows:
7.1 If, at any time after the date hereof, the number of Common Shares of the Company outstanding is increased by a distribution payable in shares of common stock of the Company or by a subdivision or split-up of Common Shares, then the Conversion Price shall be appropriately decreased.
7.2 If, at any time after the date hereof, the number of Common Shares outstanding is decreased by a combination of the outstanding Common Shares, then the Conversion Price shall be appropriately increased.
7.3 In the event of any contemplated capital reorganization of the Company, reclassification of the equity interests of the Company, or consolidation or merger of the Company, the Parties heretofore agree, prior or contemporaneously to each such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation or merger, to amend this Agreement, and the Company shall cause any other Person (including any merger counterparty) necessary to effectuate the amendment on behalf of the surviving entity following any consolidation or merger to execute such amendment, to cause the Lender to maintain and preserve the conversion rights it is entitled to under this Agreement (immediately prior to the time of such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation or merger) upon such reorganization, reclassification, consolidation or merger.
7.4 Whenever the Fixed Conversion Price shall be adjusted as provided in this Section 7, the Company shall make available for inspection during regular business hours, at its principal executive offices or at such other place as may be designated by the Company, a statement, showing in detail the facts requiring such adjustment and the Fixed Conversion Price that shall be in effect after such adjustment. The Company shall also cause a copy of such statement to be sent to the Lender at the address appearing on the Company’s records or as communicated to the Company by the Lender from time to time.
8. Reservation of Common Shares Issuable Upon Conversion. The Company shall at all times reserve and keep available out of its authorized but unissued shares of common stock solely for the purpose of effecting the potential conversion of that part of the Loan that is convertible in accordance with Section 6.1, such number of its shares of common stock as shall from time to time be sufficient to effect the conversion of the Loan; and if at any time the number of authorized but unissued shares of its common stock shall not be sufficient to effect the conversion of the entire outstanding amount of the Loan that is convertible in accordance with Section 6.1, in addition to such other remedies as shall be available to the Lender, the Company will use its best efforts to take such corporate action as may be necessary to increase its authorized but unissued shares of its common stock to such number of shares as shall be sufficient for such purposes.

WARRANT TO PURCHASE COMMON STOCK
Warrant No.: [ ]
Number of Shares of Common Stock: _______________
Date of Issuance: __________, 202* (“Issuance Date”)
Emerald Bioscience Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”), hereby certifies that, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, Emerald Health Sciences Inc., the registered holder hereof or its permitted assigns (the “Holder”), is entitled, subject to the terms set forth below, to purchase from the Company, at the Exercise Price (as defined below) then in effect, at any time or times on or after the Issuance Date, but not after 11:59 p.m., California time, on the Expiration Date (as defined below), _______________ (_____________) of fully paid nonassessable shares of Common Stock of the Company, subject to adjustment as provided herein (the “Warrant Shares”). Except as otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms in this Warrant to Purchase Common Stock (including any Warrants to Purchase Common Stock issued in exchange, transfer or replacement hereof, this “Warrant”), shall have the meanings set forth in Section 17. This Warrant is issued in connection with an Advance under that certain Amended and Restated Multi-Draw Credit Agreement, dated as of _________, 2020, by and among the Company and the Holder (the “Credit Agreement”). Capitalized terms used herein and not otherwise defined shall have the definitions ascribed to such terms in the Credit Agreement.
1. EXERCISE OF WARRANT
(a) Mechanics of Exercise. Subject to the terms and conditions hereof (including, without limitation, the limitations set forth in Section 1(f)), this Warrant may be exercised by the Holder at any time or times on or after the Issuance Date, in whole or in part, by (i) delivery of a written notice, in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A (the “Exercise Notice”), of the Holder’s election to exercise this Warrant and (ii) (A) payment to the Company of an amount equal to the applicable Exercise Price multiplied by the number of Warrant Shares as to which this Warrant is being exercised (the “Aggregate Exercise Price”) in cash, by check or by wire transfer of immediately available funds or (B) if the provisions of Section 1(d) are applicable, by notifying the Company that this Warrant is being exercised pursuant to a Cashless Exercise (as defined in Section 1(d)). The Holder shall not be required to deliver the original Warrant in order to effect an exercise hereunder. Execution and delivery of the Exercise Notice with respect to less than all of the Warrant Shares shall have the same effect as cancellation of the original Warrant and issuance of a new Warrant evidencing the right to purchase the remaining number of Warrant Shares. On or before the first (1st) Trading Day following the date on which the Company has received the Exercise Notice, the Company shall transmit by email an acknowledgment of confirmation of receipt of the Exercise Notice to the Holder and the Company’s transfer agent (the “Transfer Agent”). On or before the third (3rd) Trading Day following the date on which the Company has received the Exercise Notice, so long as the Holder delivers the Aggregate Exercise Price (or notice of a Cashless Exercise) on or prior to the second (2nd) Trading Day following the date on which the Company has received the Exercise Notice (the “Share Delivery Date”) (provided that if the Aggregate Exercise Price has not been delivered by such date, the Share Delivery Date shall be one (1) Trading Day after the Aggregate Exercise Price (or notice of a Cashless Exercise) is delivered), the Company shall (X) provided that the Transfer Agent is participating in The Depository Trust Company (“DTC”) Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, credit such aggregate number of Warrant Shares to which the Holder is entitled pursuant to such exercise to the Holder’s or its designee’s balance account with DTC through its Deposit / Withdrawal At Custodian system, or (Y) if the Transfer Agent is not participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, issue and dispatch by overnight courier to the address as specified in the Exercise Notice, a certificate, registered in the Company’s share register in the name of the Holder or its designee, for the number of Warrant Shares to which the Holder is entitled pursuant to such exercise. The Company shall be responsible for all fees and expenses of the Transfer Agent and all fees and expenses with respect to the issuance of Warrant Shares via DTC, if any. Upon delivery of the Exercise Notice, the Holder shall be deemed for all corporate purposes to have become the holder of record of the Warrant Shares with respect to which this Warrant has been exercised, irrespective of the date such Warrant Shares are credited to the Holder’s DTC account or the date of delivery of the certificates evidencing such Warrant Shares, as the case may be. If this Warrant is submitted in connection with any exercise pursuant to this Section 1(a) and the number of Warrant Shares represented by this Warrant submitted for exercise is greater than the number of Warrant Shares being acquired upon an exercise, then the Company shall as soon as practicable and in no event later than three (3) Trading Days after any exercise and at its own expense, issue a new Warrant (in accordance with Section 7(d)) representing the right to purchase the number of Warrant Shares issuable immediately prior to such exercise under this Warrant, less the number of Warrant Shares with respect to which this Warrant is exercised. No fractional Warrant Shares are to be issued upon the exercise of this Warrant, but rather the number of Warrant Shares to be issued shall be rounded up to the nearest whole number. The Company shall pay any and all taxes which may be payable with respect to the issuance and delivery of Warrant Shares upon exercise of this Warrant. The Company’s obligations to issue and deliver Warrant Shares in accordance with the terms and subject to the conditions hereof are absolute and unconditional, irrespective of any action or inaction by the Holder to enforce the same, any waiver or consent with respect to any provision hereof, the recovery of any judgment against any Person or any action to enforce the same, or any setoff, counterclaim, recoupment, limitation or termination.
(c) Exercise Price. For purposes of this Warrant, “Exercise Price” means $0.25, subject to adjustment as provided herein
(d) Company’s Failure to Timely Deliver Securities. On or prior to the Share Delivery Date, if the Transfer Agent is not participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, the Company shall fail to issue and deliver a certificate to the Holder and register such shares of Common Stock on the Company’s share register or, if the Transfer Agent is participating in the DTC Fast Automated Securities Transfer Program, credit the Holder’s balance account with DTC for the number of shares of Common Stock to which the Holder is entitled upon the Holder’s exercise hereunder or pursuant to the Company’s obligation pursuant to clause (ii) below, and if on or after such Trading Day the Holder purchases (in an open market transaction or otherwise) shares of Common Stock to deliver in satisfaction of a sale by the Holder of shares of Common Stock issuable upon such exercise that the Holder anticipated receiving from the Company (a “Buy-In”), then the Company shall, within three (3) Trading Days after the Holder’s request and in the Holder’s discretion, either (i) pay cash to the Holder in an amount equal to the Holder’s total purchase price (including brokerage commissions and other out-of-pocket expenses, if any) for the shares of Common Stock so purchased (the “Buy-In Price”), at which point the Company’s obligation to deliver such certificate (and to issue such shares of Common Stock) or credit such Holder’s balance account with DTC for such shares of Common Stock shall terminate, or (ii) promptly honor its obligation to deliver to the Holder a certificate or certificates representing such shares of Common Stock or credit such Holder’s balance account with DTC, as applicable, and pay cash to the Holder in an amount equal to the excess (if any) of the Buy-In Price over the product of (A) such number of shares of Common Stock, times (B) the Closing Bid Price of the Common Stock on the date of exercise. Nothing shall limit the Holder’s right to pursue any other remedies available to it hereunder, at law or in equity, including, without limitation, a decree of specific performance and/or injunctive relief with respect to the Company’s failure to timely deliver certificates representing shares of Common Stock (or to electronically deliver such shares of Common Stock) upon the exercise of this Warrant as required pursuant to the terms hereof.
(e) Cashless Exercise. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, if the Registration Statement covering the resale of the Unavailable Warrant Shares is not available for the resale of such Unavailable Warrant Shares, the Holder may, in its sole discretion, exercise this Warrant in whole or in part and, in lieu of making the cash payment otherwise contemplated to be made to the Company upon such exercise in payment of the Aggregate Exercise Price, elect instead to receive upon such exercise the “Net Number” of shares of Common Stock determined according to the following formula (a “Cashless Exercise”):
Net Number = (A x B) - (A x C)
For purposes of the foregoing formula:
A= the total number of shares with respect to which this Warrant is then being exercised.
B= the arithmetic average of the Closing Sale Prices of the Common Stock for the five (5) consecutive Trading Days ending on the date immediately preceding the date of the Exercise Notice.
C= the Exercise Price then in effect for the applicable Warrant Shares at the time of such exercise.
D= the Closing Sale Price of the Common Stock on the date of the Exercise Notice.
For purposes of Rule 144(d) promulgated under the 1933 Act, as in effect on the date hereof, it is intended that the Warrant Shares issued in a Cashless Exercise shall be deemed to have been acquired by the Holder, and the holding period for the Warrant Shares shall be deemed to have commenced, on the date this Warrant was originally issued pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement.
(f) Disputes. In the case of a dispute as to the determination of the Exercise Price or the arithmetic calculation of the Warrant Shares, the Company shall promptly issue to the Holder the number of Warrant Shares that are not disputed and resolve such dispute in accordance with Section 12.
(g) Insufficient Authorized Shares. If at any time while this Warrant remains outstanding the Company does not have a sufficient number of authorized and unreserved shares of Common Stock to satisfy its obligation to reserve for issuance upon exercise of this Warrant at least a number of shares of Common Stock equal to 130% of the number of shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be necessary to effect the exercise of all of this Warrant then outstanding (the “Required Reserve Amount” and the failure to have such sufficient number of authorized and unreserved shares of Common Stock, an “Authorized Share Failure”), then the Company shall immediately take all action necessary to increase the Company’s authorized shares of Common Stock to an amount sufficient to allow the Company to reserve the Required Reserve Amount for this Warrant then outstanding. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing sentence, as soon as practicable after the date of the occurrence of an Authorized Share Failure, but in no event later than sixty (60) days after the occurrence of such Authorized Share Failure, the Company shall hold a meeting of its shareholders for the approval of an increase in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock. In connection with such meeting, the Company shall provide each shareholder with a proxy statement and shall use its best efforts to solicit its shareholders’ approval of such increase in authorized shares of Common Stock and to cause its board of directors to recommend to the shareholders that they approve such proposal. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if any such time of an Authorized Share Failure, the Company is able to obtain the written consent of a majority of the shares of its issued and outstanding Common Stock to approve the increase in the number of authorized shares of Common Stock, the Company may satisfy this obligation by obtaining such consent and submitting for filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) an Information Statement on Schedule 14C. In the event that upon any exercise of this Warrant, the Company does not have sufficient authorized shares to deliver in satisfaction of such exercise, then the Holder may elect to void such attempted exercise.
(h) Conversion or Repayment of Loan. For the avoidance of doubt, the number of Warrant Shares shall not decrease and the Warrant Shares shall remain exercisable until the Expiration Date in the event of any repayment of or conversion of the Loan under the Credit Agreement.
2. ADJUSTMENT OF EXERCISE PRICE AND NUMBER OF WARRANT SHARES. The Exercise Price and the number of Warrant Shares shall be adjusted from time to time as follows:
(a) Voluntary Adjustment By Company. The Company may at any time during the term of this Warrant, with the prior written consent of the Holder, reduce the then current Exercise Price to any amount and for any period of time deemed appropriate by the Board of Directors of the Company.
(b) Adjustment Upon Subdivision or Combination of Shares of Common Stock. If the Company at any time on or after the Issuance Date subdivides (by any stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization or otherwise) one or more classes of its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a greater number of shares, the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such subdivision will be proportionately reduced and the number of Warrant Shares will be proportionately increased. If the Company at any time on or after the Issuance Date combines (by combination, reverse stock split or otherwise) one or more classes of its outstanding shares of Common Stock into a smaller number of shares, the Exercise Price in effect immediately prior to such combination will be proportionately increased and the number of Warrant Shares will be proportionately decreased. Any adjustment under this Section 2(b) shall become effective at the close of business on the date the subdivision or combination becomes effective.
(c) Other Events. If any event occurs of the type contemplated by the provisions of this Section 2 but not expressly provided for by such provisions, then the Company’s Board of Directors will make an appropriate adjustment in the Exercise Price and the number of Warrant Shares, as mutually determined by the Company’s Board of Directors and the Holder, so as to protect the rights of the Holder; provided that no such adjustment pursuant to this Section 2(c) will increase the Exercise Price or decrease the number of Warrant Shares as otherwise determined pursuant to this Section 2.
3. RIGHTS UPON DISTRIBUTION OF ASSETS. If the Company shall declare or make any dividend or other distribution of its assets (or rights to acquire its assets) to holders of shares of Common Stock, by way of return of capital or otherwise (including, without limitation, any distribution of cash, stock or other securities, property, options, evidence of indebtedness or any other assets by way of a dividend, spin off, reclassification, corporate rearrangement, scheme of arrangement or other similar transaction) (a “Distribution”), at any time after the issuance of this Warrant, then, in each such case, the Holder shall be entitled to participate in such Distribution to the same extent that the Holder would have participated therein if the Holder had held the number of shares of Common Stock acquirable upon complete exercise of this Warrant (without regard to any limitations or restrictions on exercise of this Warrant) immediately before the date of which a record is taken for such Distribution, or, if no such record is taken, the date as of which the record holders of shares of Common Stock are to be determined for the participation in such Distribution.
4. FUNDAMENTAL TRANSACTIONS. If, at any time while this Warrant is outstanding, there occurs any Fundamental Transaction (including, without limitation, one pursuant to which holders of shares of Common Stock are entitled to receive securities or other assets with respect to or in exchange for shares of Common Stock), then the Holder shall have the right thereafter to receive, upon exercise of this Warrant, in lieu of the shares of the Common Stock (or other securities, cash assets or other property purchasable upon the exercise of the Warrant prior to such Fundamental Transaction), the same amount and kind of shares of stock, securities, cash, assets or any other property whatsoever (including warrants or other purchase or subscription rights) that the Holder would have been entitled to receive upon the consummation of such Fundamental Transaction had this Warrant been exercised immediately prior to the record date for such Fundamental Transaction, as adjusted in accordance with the provisions of this Warrant. Upon the occurrence of any Fundamental Transaction, the Successor Entity, if any, shall succeed to, and be substituted for (so that from and after the date of such Fundamental Transaction, the provisions of this Warrant referring to the “Company” shall refer instead to the Successor Entity), and may exercise every right and power of the Company and shall assume all of the obligations of the Company under this Warrant with the same effect as if such Successor Entity had been named as the Company herein. The provisions of this Section shall apply similarly and equally to successive Fundamental Transactions and any adjustment under this Section 4 shall be without duplication for any adjustment or distribution made under Section 2.
5. NONCIRCUMVENTION. The Company hereby covenants and agrees that the Company will not, by amendment of its Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws, or through any reorganization, transfer of assets, consolidation, merger, scheme of arrangement, dissolution, issue or sale of securities, or any other voluntary action, avoid or seek to avoid the observance or performance of any of the terms of this Warrant, and will at all times in good faith carry out all of the provisions of this Warrant and take all action as may be required to protect the rights of the Holder. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Company (i) shall not increase the par value of any shares of Common Stock receivable upon the exercise of this Warrant above the Exercise Price then in effect, (ii) shall take all such actions as may be necessary or appropriate in order that the Company may validly and legally issue fully paid and nonassessable shares of Common Stock upon the exercise of this Warrant, and (iii) shall take all action necessary to reserve and keep available out of its authorized and unissued shares of Common Stock, solely for the purpose of effecting the exercise of the Warrant, 130% of the number of shares of Common Stock as shall from time to time be necessary to effect the exercise of the Warrant.
6. WARRANT HOLDER NOT DEEMED A SHAREHOLDER. Except as otherwise specifically provided herein, the Holder, solely in such Person’s capacity as a holder of this Warrant, shall not be entitled to vote or receive dividends or be deemed the holder of share capital of the Company for any purpose, nor shall anything contained in this Warrant be construed to confer upon the Holder, solely in such Person’s capacity as the Holder of this Warrant, any of the rights of a shareholder of the Company or any right to vote, give or withhold consent to any corporate action (whether any reorganization, issue of stock, reclassification of stock, consolidation, merger, conveyance or otherwise), receive notice of meetings, receive dividends or subscription rights, or otherwise, prior to the issuance to the Holder of the Warrant Shares which such Person is then entitled to receive upon the due exercise of this Warrant. In addition, nothing contained in this Warrant shall be construed as imposing any liabilities on the Holder to purchase any securities (upon exercise of this Warrant or otherwise) or as a shareholder of the Company, whether such liabilities are asserted by the Company or by creditors of the Company. Notwithstanding this Section 6, the Company shall provide the Holder with copies of the same notices and other information given to the shareholders of the Company generally, contemporaneously with the giving thereof to the shareholders.
7. REISSUANCE OF WARRANTS.
(a) Transfer of Warrant.

The parties will endeavor in good faith negotiations to replace the prohibited, invalid or unenforceable provision(s) with a valid provision(s), the effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the prohibited, invalid or unenforceable provision(s).
16. DISCLOSURE.
